Once Upon A Time: S4, E4 - The Apprentice So. Here's the thing, there are a few things that I liked in this ep. Loved the hat, the backstory to the hat, the apprentice, the apprentice being turned into a mouse, Ana, Sven, the broom, Emma living with her parents, the polaroid, the date, Killian stating that Emma's never pillaged and plundered with him (especially this part).

All good things, well done things. Also Killian in regular clothes, at last getting rid of that coat.

But. The whole storyline between Gold and Hook -- ridiculous. I believe the hand does have Hook's old way of thinking inside, I think that is what happened, I don't believe Gold that it only gave Hook permission. I think Gold set him up just like Ana.

Here's the thing, they have worked at evolving Gold, taking him from such a base evil character, giving him a backstory, making the audience feel and understand, watching him fall in love with Belle, struggling with it, failing, then later succeeding. Saying he's changed, then lying, then changed, then lying. It's stupid and weak and lazy on the writer's part.

All shows need that bad/evil/antagonist, I get that, but I do think that they could have created a new one. The Snow Queen, make her arch longer. You can still utilize Gold as a bad guy in the flashbacks. Yes he states he never heard of Ana, but they could have twisted that somehow (especially now that it seems he didn't "take" Ana). This is like the Queen all over again, the Queen can never be evil again, if that happens I'm done.

The writers have worked so hard to have character development and I just feel like the Yo-Yo feel with Gold is just so they can keep using the character/actor.

Yesterday was the family party and it went well, there were about 13 people here and then only 11 for dinner, that included children. It was really small since the rest of my family had other obligations etc. Every year when I do this I always tell myself I won't be controlling, that I won't freak out, that I will handle things smoothly.

That's of course, not what happened. I can see myself overreacting to all the questions that I'm asked or trying to keep things moving, and then it doesn't help that i have my family (mainly my parents and brother) telling me to relax, and it doesn't have to be on plan, or organized. That's not the way I'm made, it's just not. But maybe next year I won't be so ahhhhhh.

Today Mr. KA had a work thing so he was gone all day. I took the kids to Church, then the food store, we came home for lunch and I cooked a chicken breast and made cheeseburger pizza. Then we went to the movies to see Alexander and the horrible, terrible, no good very bad day. (The movie was adorable, sure silly and over the top in places, but I just felt it was cute and it made me laugh in several places... a lot. The kids seemed to enjoy the really silly stuff. And it just reminds me how adorable Jennifer Garner is).

After we go home I cleaned up the dinners and then we started peeling apples for apple sauce. The kids would turn the handle to peel it, I would cut up and stick on the crock pot. The kids did play a few extra moments of electronics today, but I got so much stuff done. I gave them showers, made them grilled cheese for dinner, and then they watched a movie LM#1 got for his birthday (they had seen it already). I folded 4 loads of laundry and the towels are in the dryer. Oh and I made lunches for Mr KA and LM#1 for tomorrow.

Whew. Busy busy day. Mr. KA finally got home after 8:30. Long day for both of us.
